“Starting to feel a lot better,” Tiger posts recovery update to his website

Published

on

A week after the “He’s bedridden, no wait, he’s hitting irons…and drivers!” Tiger Woods injury update circus, Woods has taken to his website to add further clarity to his situation.

Spoiler: There’s still no timetable for his return.

Woods began his post with a shout out to Florida and confirmation that he’s making progress. 

“As I announced last week, I am starting to feel a lot better. I have been chipping and putting at home, and recently started hitting 9 irons. That’s been so nice. After all, Florida is the Sunshine State.”

Then, he proved he’s already turning his son into a hard man. 

“My son Charlie and I compete in just about everything and have three-hole chipping contests. The loser has to do push-ups. My short game feels pretty sharp.”

He also shared his #fitnessgoals. 

“The big thing right now is trying to get stronger and more flexible. Sitting out as long as I did, some weakening occurred, and I have a lot of work ahead of me. While there is no timetable on my return to competitive golf, I want to play this game at the highest level again. In order to do that, I have to get healthy.”

And thanked his fellow pros for their support. 

“I’ve received many nice calls and texts from my fellow PGA Tour players and want to thank them for their support and encouragement. It’s a fraternity out there, and we’re all in this together.”

He also used the opportunity to plug some of his commercial endeavors. 

“Today, I am excited to be outside Houston to host a special member day for the official opening of The Playgrounds and The Place at Bluejack National. The Playgrounds is a 10-hole short course where the focus is on fun and family. The vision is to attract multi-generations to promote socializing with family and friends and introduce new players to the game. Players can practice there too, and it challenges golfers of all skill levels to learn to hit a variety of shots.

We will also celebrate the opening of The Place, just the third Nike Performance Center in the world. I’m grateful to Nike for its support.

The front nine at Bluejack National is now open, and I am very appreciative for the nice reviews. I couldn’t be more proud of how it is turning out. The back nine is scheduled to open in late April.”

Finally, TW signed off with gratitude for the “best fans in the world.”

That’s all for now. As always, thanks so much for your great support. Without a doubt, I have the best fans in the world.

Interesting photos from the Zozo Championship

Published

on

This week is the Zozo Championship at Sherwood Golf Club, and with most of the worlds top golfers including Tiger Woods playing and prepping for the November Masters, there is a lot going on around the range when it comes to gear and testing.

As a reminder, you can check out all of our photos in the GolfWRX forums.

New Fourteen irons and wedges

IMG_8704.jpeg

The irons are a throwback to a classic “channel back” style iron with mass positioned towards the top and bottom of the face to increase vertical stability of the blade while also maintaining feel.

Justin Rose with Artisan lob wedge

The little shop from Texas continues to make big waves with more wedges spotted on tour every week including in former world number 1 Justin Rose.

Xander Schauffele’s new Apex irons and testing putters on Quintic

Xander’s prototype Callaway Apex irons look a lot like the newly released 2021 X-Forged irons but with obvious Apex branding. We also can’t forget about putting, and it’s cool to see a Quintic high-speed camera system on the practice green getting players dialed in to launch conditions just like how they would for a driver.

Ricky using older generation Cobra Amp Cell Pro Irons

IMG_8580.jpeg

If there is one thing pros love, it’s a set of older irons—they’re the golf equivalent of putting on a pair of comfy broken-in jeans. For Ricky and his custom Amp Cell Pro’s with tungsten toe inserts, there must be some magic there because he has previously used multiple newer sets of irons but continues to gravitate towards these.

Hideki Maruyama testing new Bettinardi putter

Hideki isn’t someone to shy away from testing putters, and this week he was spotted testing one of the new Bettinardi putters that debuted last week in Las Vegas at Shadow Creek.

Pros are “just like us” – Justin Thomas and Mac Hughes edition

Yes, tour pros are just like us except for the fact that they are exceptional golfers, but even JT likes help in his long game and has a Titleist T300 3-iron in the bag, and when it comes to breakfast Mackenzie Hughes happens to like ketchup with his breakfast sandwich—although personally, I’m anti-ketchup when it comes to breakfast sandwiches.

Mickelson testing older X-Hot 3Deep

We’ve heard rumblings, of Champions Tour terminator Phil Mickelson testing 47.5″ drivers in the name of speed and distance, but as a way to also have a “fairway finder” it appears that he is contemplating putting his old X-Hot 3Deep in play. (Being able to identify a multi-generations old fairway wood from a distance based on its paint scheme is part of the reason we are WRX)

Gary Woodland testing Ping G425 driver

With the launch of the Ping G425 woods on tour a few weeks ago, it’s no surprise to see more players testing them in prep for the Masters, and for the fact that, they are the next evolution of the well-loved Ping G410—Gary Woodland is no exception.
